Council offer for nappies

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE County Council is offering parents a cash back incentive to try using real nappies instead of disposable ones.

To promote Real Nappy Week this week parents and carers across the county can claim back £25 on £50 or more spent on real nappies.

The move is part of Nottinghamshire County Council’s efforts to reduce the amount of household waste sent to landfill – and slash pounds off peoples weekly shopping bill.

It costs taxpayers across Nottinghamshire about £100 to dispose of every tonne of rubbish which ends up at landfill.

And it is estimated that before a child is potty trained, they use nearly 6,000 nappies – weighing in at a hefty tonne a time.

To take advantage of the offer, all residents need to do is complete the claim form at www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/realnappiesand keep their receipts.

This initiative is ongoing throughout the year.
